The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) announced that Virginia farmers intend to increase planted acreage for soybeans, cotton and corn but decrease acreage for peanuts.

Virginia's cotton producers expect to plant 125,000 acres, up 51 percent from last year.

Planting of major row crops is just in the beginning or planning stages. Therefore, producers may change their plans as the planting season progresses.

Nationwide, corn planted acreage could be up five percent from 2010, soybean acreage down one percent, all wheat acreage up eight percent and all cotton acreage up 15 percent.

Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services was established in 1877, is responsible for over 60 laws and more than 70 regulations relating to consumer protection and the promotion of agriculture.
